01Morning Exercise and Staying Active
A big change over the last couple years in the Primary Department has been the establishment of Morning Exercise from 7:40-8:00 am. Times for unstructured play are critical for children developing social and communication skills, as well as a way to get exercise and enjoy the outdoors.
Our students love Morning Exercise to start their day with smiles, fun, and friends! Students independently start games with each other and utilize all of our beautiful facilities, such as our climbing net and the sports field.
It’s awesome to be an I-Shou student.
02Middle School End-of-Semester Assessment Week
Happy New Year!
We are completing our first week of school in the Western New Year of 2022.
This week in Middle School is End-of-Semester Assessment Week. Throughout the week, students worked diligently and were very principled as they finished assessments in all MYP subject areas. We are proud of the effort that our students have put forth; we have very bright students at I-Shou. Final reports will be released on January 24th.
Good work Middle School; a very successful and diligent start to 2022!
03A Focused week in the International Secondary Department (ISD): Students Doing Their Best in Their Assessments
This week in the ISD students were focused on their end of semester assessments. They have impressed with their attitude towards everything that they have done, and I am sure that they have all tried their very best. They should be congratulated for their efforts this week!
Beyond the assessments it was great to see the Grade 11s in their Theory of Knowledge (TOK) class examining the concept of bias through the “politics compass”, while the Grade 10s found time this week to practice for the end of semester Chinese New Year performances.
We are excited to see the final show!
Next week the Art Exhibition will be center stage.
04Secondary Bilingual Department (SBD) Grade 9 - The Electricity Current Challenge
Recently, the Secondary Bilingual Department (SBD) grade 9 students are learning about electricity. Through the “Electric Current Activity,” students can understand what will affect the electricity current loops and short circuits.
Students had to successfully move through the maze without touching any obstacles.
It was an exciting challenge!
